The tensions between Iran and the United States took a new turn as the terrorist regime felt the fury of the United States as one of their drones was shot down. Iran had previously stated that they shot down an American drone so now the favor has been given back.
President Trump stated, “The U.S. reserves the right to defend personal, facilities, interests.” No one even knows what the drone was doing where it should not have been. Iran could have loaded it with weapons seeking another target to destroy.
The heroes aboard the USS Boxer took action after the drone got close. The drone was ordered to stand down but it continued the course. This kind of behavior from Iran is hostile action and it will be dealt with. When Iran shot down a drone from the United States it was herald as a major victory by Iran. But it is no big deal for the United States to shoot down drones because it is all in a day’s work.
It did not take much to bring it down as electronic jamming technology was used instead of weapons. These kinds of actions by Iran is what is getting them trouble with others around the world. They provoke other people and kill innocent people. And then they brag about it all over the media.
President Trump a few months back decided to call off an attack on Iran because civilians would have been hit. This is a major difference between a nation of peace like the United States and a nation of terror like Iran.
The great leader that Trump is called on other nations to condemn Iran’s attempts to disrupt the freedom of travel through the area. Iran wants to destroy global commerce at any cost by shutting down an important shipping passageway. The Persian Gulf is a highly traveled area for many nations trying to get their resources to market.
For some, it is the only way that they can afford to travel the seas and make any kind of profit because the other ways are too long to traverse. Iran is a bully nation that is about to be wiped out as a power of terror.
Jonathan Hoffman displayed the courage of the men and women of the USS Boxer when he stated, “At approximately 10 a.m. local time, the amphibious ship USS Boxer was in international waters conducting a planned inbound transit of the Strait of Hormuz. A fixed-wing unmanned aerial system (UAS) approached Boxer and closed within a threatening range. The ship took defensive action against the UAS to ensure the safety of the ship and its crew.”
The drone was a threat to the people of the ship and others around the region. Iran is crying over the loss of their beloved cover treaty. Under the treaty, they could get away with things that no one would ever know about. Now that the treaty is gone Iran is content to enrich its uranium in full defiance of other nations that disapprove of them making nuclear weapons.
Iran and its propaganda want the world to think that everything in their country is perfect. But the reality of the situation is that the sanctions are hurting their economy. Iran is strangulating their people by playing this most dangerous game.
They hide their oil in tankers and cloak them under darkness to try to get them to market. They need the money from oil sales, so they can continue to operate their nuclear program. Proof of their smuggling operation was discovered when Great Britain seized a tanker with Iranian oil in it. Iran wanted it back so badly they started making threats to innocent nations and people.
Iran cannot be trusted with the current leaders in charge of the country. They never have had the best intentions when dealing with the United States or any other western nations. They hate Israel and will do anything to destroy the tiny nation. The United States and President love Israel and will defend them if an attack comes their way.
